A copy of your editorial reached me via friends forwarding it. Although two words may not seem like much, THANK YOU. Like many, I swell with Husker pride. More than the winning or losing, I take pride in the way Husker Nation treats our guests. To me, college sports should be a positive venue where athletes display there best abilities while we as fans support them.
I went to one game in Boulder and was extremely disappointed in what I witnessed. Although the Huskers were humilitated on the field, that was not my biggest disappointment. I attended that game with my 65 year old father and 16 year old daughter. I was spit at while verbal insults were hurled, including words that a 16 year old should not be subjected to. That combined with the negative propaganda by the admininstration demonstrated a part of college sports that I was truly embarrassed by. It is now history.
Although I will probably never subject myself to the mistreatment by CU administration and fans, I will always do my best to ensure that CU fans are NEVER treated that way when coming to Lincoln. I realize that may not be realistic, but I will be the first to say something to a Husker fan who speaks ill or mistreats an opponent or a fan of that opponent.
All that said, again I thank you for your positive words in your newspaper. It is being circulated around the Husker Nation. If you are ever back in Lincoln I hope you are once again able to enjoy a positive atmosphere as a guest in our city.
